Flower Seed (Perennials) Planting Information:

Perennial flowers do best when planted indoors and transplanted outdoors when danger of frost has past. Plant your seeds indoors, 5 to 7 weeks before setting outside. For tiny seeds, do not cover with seed starting mix. Just sprinkle the seeds on top. Transplant them outside in garden when seedlings are established. Unlike Annuals, Perennials will grow each year. Plants can grow 1 - 3 ft tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Water well during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro periodically.

Harvest Tips:

Snip the stems with garden scissors when flowers are in full color.
